Words are powerful creatures. Sometimes sleek and smooth, sometimes coarse and rough. Once they’re out there, we can’t snatch them back, tame them, or change them. Of course, not all words are hurtful or intended to wound. But words that hurt can kill us slowly and painfully, like a torturer. They cut away at our confidence, they eat up our self-esteem. While we might be able to maintain outward façade of normality, we inwardly shrivel and die. In those hidden depths, we can look and feel like “The Scream,” by Edvard Munch.

When East Valley residents are looking for a brief getaway to decompress and escape the sweltering summer heat, they usually turn their eyes northward to the cooler climes of Prescott, Flagstaff or the Mogollon Rim.

Reality has a habit of raining down hard and melting away the comforts formed by the kindness of imagination and the vagaries of memory. There’s the way a person wants to remember an event that occurred in his or her life, and then there’s the way the event actually played out, complete with details absent of sympathy.

Collecting autographs all started probably when you were a child. For me, it was a Nolan Ryan baseball in 1974. Going to Angel Stadium with my mom and dad, I would grab a baseball that I had been playing catch with, not thinking that maybe someday it would be worth something if I got it signed. Nolan Ryan was my favorite player — being able to control a game with your pitching skills was pretty cool and being able to throw no-hitters — even better. I would hang over the fence by the dugout to see where Ryan was and where he might come out and sign autographs. It always seemed to me that people that were there also seeking autographs were getting the programs they had purchased when they entered the stadium signed. I figured since he played on the field with a baseball, maybe he would sign my baseball. Not only did he end up signing my ball, but he also signed my glove, too. And believe it or not, I played catch with that ball and glove until most of the autograph wore off!

That is likely true for many retirees, but it is also partly true for everyone with a job … at least for some of the time.
